Postcard Birds

Vintage cards are such a pleasure to create, they would be my favourite style, I always refer to it as very 'kind' with it's distressed lines and muted shades.

Soft tones feature in this card, using the Penny Black Inc harmony cling stamp for the background, this image has been cut using the Spellbinders™ A-2 Matting Basics B Nestabilities®and the Grand Calibur® Machine

and an adorable Crafty Individuals Seven Cheeky Songbirds image for the center, lightly coloured using Tsukineko Memento Markers, I love this image - it is the first time I have used it,but definitely won't be the last - infact the whole site is divine, their images appeal to me greatly!

Finishing off with Want2Scrap bling and pearls, lace and Mulberry Roses - a little bit nostalgic and totally easy.

This card is created for the following challenges:
Opus Gluei Glitz, Glamour, Bring on the Bling 
Penny Black and More Love is in the Air 
The Squirrel & the Fox - Something New 
 My Time to Craft - Things with Wings
